Your Win List
© 2004 By Michael Angier
Just as important as setting goals is
tracking the goals we achieve.
Have you ever visited a teenage niece or nephew you hadn't
seen in a while? The changes in looks and height were quite
noticeable, weren't they? However, the progress wasn't as
apparent to them and their parents because it was
gradual--or so it seemed.
The same things happen to us. We don't always see the
progress we're making because we're too close to it. We're
so busy focusing on what we want and what we haven't yet
achieved, we rarely take time to acknowledge ourselves and
APPRECIATE what we have.And when we really appreciate what
we have, we find that we have more and more to appreciate.
I find that using a Win List is a good way
to remind myself of my progress--and keep me more mindful of
what I'm achieving. It's just a document in my word
processor that I add to often. It's titled 'Wins & Events:
Good News, Good Decisions, Breakthroughs, Wins and
Every few days, I update it with things that have happened,
breakthroughs, goals achieved, events that impact my life
and the many blessings that come my way. Each line has the
month (and often the exact date) of the event noted. One
line is enough for me to capture the occurrence.

My 'Win List' creates a 'chronofile' of my life. And it
keeps me focused on what's working. It helps to remind me of
how far I've come. Reviewing it is a quick pick-me-up--a
real confidence booster. It's also a handy reference as to
when and what happened--especially since I'm not always very
consistent with my personal journal.
It's easy to do. It only takes a few moments. And it helps
be more appreciative. Almost all of the people to whom I've
recommended this have reported similar positive results.
If you try it, I know you'll find it helpful--and even fun.
